“So I’ll have to explain what we are inside, then it’ll be easy for you to understand why we cannot control ourselves.
You can see here, three lines are shown (below, on the Chakra Chart): one on the Left, on the Right and in the Centre.
“The Left side represents the Power of Desire within us, and is the Psyche as Freud has described it. But Freud was very half baked, so I don’t know what he means by that, very confused person. Thanks to him, in America now people are suffering.. Like a blind leading blind, people have dived into such horrible conditions that I don’t know what’s going to happen. And many people taken a cue from him think that if you play upon weaknesses of people then you can entice them. But your weaknesses are not going to make you strong!
You must have that power by which you are not slave of any weakness or any habit, you are on Top of Everything.
“Now the left hand side of the power, of Power of Desire is also reflected in our past and our conditionings. In the gross it expresses itself as the left sympathetic nervous system. And so the past is there and then the present past and the past past and the collective past beyond that.
Those people who think too much about the past, repent about it, or thrive on it or all the time living with the past, or with the dead, are driven into the area called as collective subconscious. Now many fake people are doing that, is to entice, mesmerise and put you into this collective subconscious, which is the dead. Recently I saw a very good film by some doctors who had researched it and they said that a person who is vulnerable to cancer is attacked by some proteins called 58, protein 52, because they only give names, and these proteins attack a person and they are the ones which trigger cancer. So these people who go too much to the left means all the time weep, cry and feel that they are good for nothing, indulge into all kinds of perverted sexology’s, they get in trouble with this. And to suffer from cancer is having hell in your life. There are many other diseases when you go to the left, is like myelitis and Parkinson’s disease and epileptic, and all these things come from the left, same problem. If you feel guilty very much then a centre here on the left Vishuddhi (left aspect of the throat chakra know as Vishuddhi), as we call it, gets caught up. Then one suffers from a disease called angina and such diseases which give you Spondylitis and other imbalance of the left side. So when you try to be very efficient, work very hard, and you exert yourself very much, then you work on the right side. All futuristic people are right sided. Actually the past is finished and future doesn’t exist. You have to be in the present. And Present is the Reality. But the Thought comes to us and then passes on, then another thought comes to us and passes on and that’s how we are living on the cusp of the past or the future. That’s how our mind is all the time spinning thoughts which are useless and exhausting. Now the right hand side, when you go to the extreme, you go to the supraconscious and then to the collective supraconscious. Collective supraconscious can give you powers to entice a complete race to do something wrong. Collective supraconscious can give you hallucinations and you start seeing things of light and all that. And a person can become extremely egotistical and so much devoid of feeling that he can kill any number of people. So at the extreme of the left you become a masochist and at the extreme of the right you become a sadist, without knowing you are that. So we have to be in the Centre and not go to extremes.”
“Now the central path is represented by parasympathetic within our system. This is the ascending path for our awareness. On the left side we have what is called the collective subconscious, on the right we have the collective supraconscious and on the top we have super consciousness which we have to achieve while at our feet is the hell which is built I think people like Freud. Now to become super conscious we have to realise we have to become the spirit, which is ‘the auto’ within us. Germans make very good cars so I give an analogy of a car. Say in a car we have got a brake and an accelerator. Now the left side is the brake and the right side is the accelerator, and the driver is the Spirit.
Now the driver is a person, personality, ‘I‘ is the driver. Now when you go too much to the left you cannot move, supposing you have all the time brakes, the car will not move. And when you have too much of acceleration, God knows what will happen. I saw recently a vehicle which runs for 250 km/hr. I got a fright of my life :-), I said where are they running so fast ?! So this kind of accelerator, if you are all the time and no brake, God knows what is going to happen to this world, already we are on the way of destruction.
So when a new driver starts learning, he, first of all, puts the brake, sometimes he puts jerkily, the accelerator, and he learns that he is making mistakes, and then he comes to a Balance.
That is what it should be, we should have a Balanced Life.
In our day to day we live on balance. We cannot have a car with only two wheels on one side, we have to have four wheels on both the sides. So we live in imbalance and any kind of imbalance can give you physical, mental or emotional problems of a very serious nature.
Now when this driver learns how to drive, then the owner, who is the Spirit, just becomes the driver, or we can say the driver becomes the owner. And when the driver becomes the owner he sees the driver within himself, that is the parasympathetic and the left sympathetic and the right sympathetic, and he sits comfortably, not bothered about it.
And he becomes the Master of the driver, of the brake, and of the accelerator. :-)”
